TAIWAN TOUR REPORT


In March/April 2002 be " had been invited for the first time to a concert tour to TAIWAN!



Mr Huang Chia Wei, the president of the Taiwanese guitarists' association "AGTM" and Taiwanese marketing manager of Acoustic Music Records, was already so enthusiastic about the CD "Everything" only when he listened to track 1 that he promptly did everything in his power to invite the two musicians to a concert tour to his country.

So there was only little time left from December 2001 on to get prepared - and on March 26, 2002, the time had come: after a 24-hours-journey with three take-offs and landings the Godin-guitar as well as singer Christiane Weber and guitarist Eddie Nünning much to their own relief had got over the flights.

Without exception the following concerts along the Taiwanese West coast were very successful and well attended - whether at the Jazzclub "Riverside" in Taipei or at the various "Concert Halls" for example in Tainan or Tai Chung ...

... With her humorous and pleasant way of moderating and with a few scraps of Chinese Christiane managed to captivate the Taiwanese audience in no time!







Even after the concerts people crowded round Eddie, some "guitar freaks" wanted to know everything ...



... and they got their money´s worth at the two guitar workshops in Tainan and Taipei.









The introductory programme was performed by the American guitarist SASQUATCH (Scott Ezell), who lives in Taiwan. After a short interlude for a better communication he asked first Eddie and for the last song also Christiane to come on stage - a perfect shift to the duet programme!



... As it is the practice in Taiwan the concerts usually ended in autograph sessions which were according to the respective audiences not only confined to the signing of CDs and songbooks ...





... And that´s how the songbook to the CD "Everything" looks like (the Taiwanese special edition unfortunately is not available over here):



On the occasion of the opening celebration of Mr Huang´s new guitar shop a whole wall was decorated with "to be Two"-CDs in honour of the two musicians ...



Saying goodbye to such a nice host like Mr Huang and his family and also to the fans from Taipei was hard.
